Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

I've not written before due to the situation with my hands. I find it difficult and especially painful due to carpel tunnel and arthritis in my thumbs. My physical and mental health are slipping away. As for talking in forums or to groups I find difficult and I'm uncomfortable doing so. I didn't want to appear ignorant and not reply to your message.  As I said I find it uncomfortable due pain, dyslexia. Above all else I'm of an age and background that dictates sharing my thoughts and feelings isn't done. I thought I could overcome what I was taught fifty-three back. :/
As for tags, the last tags I had were dog-tags.

    Were you supposed to reply on another thread but started your own by mistake? 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
